Outcome: Failed 🙁

I didn't like the idea of not escaping, part of the room felt more of a old pub not a casino. I would like to point out that you can't complete the room.

A game packed full of uninspiring puzzles, a couple of which required some leaps of logic that overstepped the mark for me. You'll get close to a full hour's entertainment but I left feeling the game could have been so much more.
Two of the goats gamble on this room being enjoyable. Will they come out in the red or the black?
Escape Casino is a pretty hard game. Partly through puzzles that are just tough, partly through puzzles that are unfairly obscure, and partly just its nature as a non-linear game.
The third and final Escape Room we visited in Edinburgh was Escape Edinburgh. They claim to have been Scotland’s first Live Escape Game company. We were very curious what kind of game to expect from a company with that much experience. What we found was surprising, so let’s start the Review. Escape Edinburgh Edinburgh, Scotland Location: […]
A twist on the normal “you need to get out” model, this game has an extra way to separate the best teams. Challenging game with a great many padlocks. Extremely friendly and attentive staff.
